the beating refers to the overusing of the "dead horse". Said horse is a metaphor for a joke, and the fact that it's no longer living implies that it's no longer funny
person1:hey...is that a dead horse
person2:uhhh.....yyy..yes i believe it is...why do you ask?
person1:oh no reason...say...you wouldn't wanna beat that dead horse would you?
person2:i thought you'd never ask
persons1+2 proceed in beating the dead horse
five minutes later, cop enters
cop:hey are you beating that dead horse?
persons1+2:yes...
cop:...well...care if i join you?
persons1+2:not at all
